random thoughts for friday october 29th, 2010



1.  today, i’m going to salute BOB KEESHAN, who played “CAPTAIN KANGAROO.”  used to LOVE that show…..i’m going to show you a video in a few minutes of some classic pictures from the show that will bring back great memories….BOB KEESHAN died back in 2004 at the age of 76.  here’s a couple of picture of CAPTAIN KANGAROO…

and here he is in his later years…

i was going to load pictures of all the characters on the show, but i found a really cool video…if you get time, watch this…


2.  here’s an older video of the show opening, and the classic “PING PONG BALLS” that fell on the captain…i forgot about the stars and normal people at the beginning of the show that said, “GOOD MORNING CAPTAIN.”


3.  and remember this classic show opening? he would peek thru every door, and when he walked in he had his classic “key ring” on him…


4.  actor JAMES MACARTHUR  died yesterday at the age of 72..he’s best known for his role on “HAWAII FIVE-O”, where he played DANNO….actor JACK LORD, who played “STEVE MCGARRETT”, would say, “BOOK EM’ DANNO.”  here are some classic photos, including one with JACK LORD.

and here he was in recent years…

5.  WOW…the response to my “letter to all politicians” struck a nerve with people….every e-mail i recieved was in support of the letter…i just don’t know why we have to dread election season.  it should be exciting and fun….but it usually isn’t.

6.  NBC outdid themselves last night with halloween episodes of my favorite shows.  first of all, they had a SHREK special…including my favorite guy, GINGY, the gingerbread man.

after that came HALLOWEEN classics from “COMMUNITY”, which wasn’t very good.  but then we had AWESOME episodes of my two favorite shows on tv…”THE OFFICE” and the new show “OUTSOURCED”, which i just love….

7.  MITCHELL AND I played a football game on one of our game consoles yesterday, and nobody wanted to win.  it went into five overtimes, with yours truly winning like 162-158…it was crazy.

8.  democratic pollster DOUG SCOEN reports that likely voters would rather have GEORGE W. BUSH back in the WHITE HOUSE instead of PRESIDENT OBAMA…the vote was 48-43 percent…the rest of the votes were split between, LARRY MOE AND CURLY…

9.  how do kids stay thin and not eat as much chocolate on halloween?  have BRETT FAVRE throw  out the candy at your house…OUCH…

10.  WAYNE STATE UNIVERSITY researchers have discovered that some women’s brains are wired in a way, that makes it difficult for them to become sexually aroused.  the scientific name for this group is “WIVES.”

11.  MICHAEL JACKSON was the highest earning “DEAD CELEBRITY” last year, by making 275 million dollars…oh yeah, plus that $250 dollar stimulus check…

12.  RYAN SEACREST is selling his 10,000 square foot home.  it’s too much space for him, being he spends most of his time in the closet.

13.  the new title of the next BATMAN movie will be, “THE DARK KNIGHT RISES.”  sponsored by cialis.


 An old man decided his old wife was getting hard of hearing. So he called her doctor to make an appointment to have her hearing checked.
     The doctor said he could see her in two weeks, and meanwhile there’s a simple, informal test the husband could do to give the doctor some idea of the dimensions of the problem.
     “Here’s what you do. Start about 40 feet away from her, and speak in a normal conversational tone and see if she hears you. If not, go to 30 feet, then 20 feet, and so on until you get a response.”
     So that evening she’s in the kitchen cooking dinner, and he’s in the living room, and he says to himself, “I’m about 40 feet away, let’s see what happens.”
     “Honey, what’s for supper?” No response.
     So he moves to the other end of the room, about 30 feet away.
    “Honey, what’s for supper?” No response.
     So he moves into the dining room, about 20 feet away.
    “Honey, what’s for supper?” No response.
     On to the kitchen door, only 10 feet away.
    “Honey, what’s for supper?”. No response.
     So he walks right up behind her.
    “Honey, what’s for supper?”
     “For the FIFTH time, CHICKEN!!!!”
